As the autumnal macabrely arrives, we at DM reach out to you, our valued contributors and readers, for your needed support.
Every week, thousands of you enjoy our cornucopia of posts on the Book of Faces. Every day, over five thousand discerning readers enchant to the classical frivolities here at DM du Jour. And every year, over seventy five thousand of you turn to Danse Macabre for your literary degustation.
We do not accept advertising. We do not offer paid subscriptions. We do not charge for submissions (and remain aghast at those venues who do and those who partake). We believe our brand cuts a distinctive dash in a crowded marketplace, one you have clearly come to enjoy – and value. But there are real costs to be borne, not to mention the time devoted and dedication required to maintain our shared standards. We do not ask often and we do not ask much, but we now ask you, as one of the thousands of Macabristas out there across the ether, to help sustain the DM brand.
Many kind literati have over the past year already contributed, but they represent less than one percent of our monthly readership. Imagine, if you will, only one percent of all your writing submissions being accepted – or receiving a one percent raise, a one percent tip. Imagine a magazine or newspaper reduced in size to one percent, the only bit that had been sufficiently sustained. Your timely gift of $10 – a whole three cups ‘o’ Joe – will make a world of difference in helping sustain Danse Macabre as we launch our second decade publishing the finest in online coloratura letters.
